"Hello My God"

Children's Conversations With God — Infants & Juniors

This series of six videos is essentially about children’s prayer. Teaching children to pray is vital to their spiritual development, especially in helping them to nurture a warm, familiar and loving relationship with God. It is difficult to relate to someone to whom we never speak! Children need to know that there is no right or wrong way to pray, that God listens to them always and receives them as they are, unconditionally.

Each video runs for 7-8 minutes. Episodes include:

  • God, I Know Where To Find You…
  • God, You Do Beautiful Things…
  • God, I Wonder…
  • God, Sometimes I Feel Sad…
  • God, I Feel Happy When…
  • God, This Is What I Know About Jesus…

"...From God's Word"

Reflection & Prayer ...From God's Word — Middle & Primary

This video series offers image reflections on key words from the Gospels for the liturgical seasons and major feasts. The images and texts are accompanied by reflective music. Following this, the viewers are invited to relate the text and images to their own life experience through questions for personal reflection or group sharing. The video experience concludes with a prayer and the opportunity to sing a relevant song.

Each video runs for 3-5 minutes. Episodes include:

  • God's Way…
  • Trust In God…
  • Prepare A Way For God…
  • God's Love Will Renew You
  • Nothing Is Impossible…
